Last Friday, Jayla's Pre-K class was given a really fun homework assignment. They had a do a treasure hunt. If they find all the items they receive a $20 gift card to Longhorn Steaks AND a $10 gift card to Toys R Us. Pretty cool, huh?
Well, not only did the kids have a list of teasures to find, but the parents had to find some too. Here's what we had to search for:
~Concert ticket stub - 3 pts.
~Wedding invitation - 2 pts.
~Highschool graduation picture - 3 pts.
~Pre 1980's baseball card - 4 pts.
~Eight track tape -3 pts. (this should be worth a LOT more than 3 pts.!)
~Sonogram picture - 1 pt.
~Postcard postmarked from another country - 10 pts.
~Foreign money (not Canadial or Mexican) - 6 pts.
~Picture of parent dressed in a costume - 3 pts.
~Photo of parent taken with tv or movie celebrity (no dressed up characters such as Mickey Mouse) 15 pts.
~McDonalds Happy Meal toy - 1 pt.
~Varsity (restaurant) hat - 2 pts.
~Photo of student taken on vacation - 2 pts.
~Movie ticket stub - 3 pts.
~Sports jersey/T-shirt - 3 pts.
~Kids menu - 2 pts.
~Board game piece - 1 pt.
~Sunglasses - 3 pts.
~Party invitation - 3 pts.
~Celebrity autogragh addressed to the student (not from a dressed up character, can be from tv, movie or sports star)
In addition to finding all of these items, we also had to decorate a treasure chest/box to put the items in. And in case of a tie with points, the best decorated treasure chest will win.
(Notice the cute little bow on the "girl" skull & crossbones. Also, if you look closely, you'll see "jewels" and "coins" coming out of the chest)
We successfully found all but one of the items. Unfortunately, daddy and I don't have any photos with a tv/movie celebrity (we don't get out much with the rich and famous anymore...lol). But with a little help from friends & family, we have everything else.
The assignment is due tomorrow, so I'll let you know then how we did.
